patchwork all silk hand-painted swingy dress

The various silk crepe pieces that went into the creation of this dress have all been painted separately in shades of blue and green to achieve this subtle patchwork look and to make the eye travel around when looking at the dress. The use of heavier silk crepe for most of it gives it a pleasant weight and make it bouncy and swingy, if you will - very pleasant to move around in! Feels very flirty. Product code: B7109

Hand wash or gentle dry clean.

General cleaning instructions for all garments (also see care tag inside the clothing) are as follows:

  • Any garment can be dry-cleaned with the gentle/delicates method.
  • Items marked 'hand wash' can be washed by hand (not in the gentle or hand-wash machine cycle), separately, as briefly as possible, with minimal amount of mild detergent, particularly for hand-painted items. Follow with the spin cycle of the washing machine, and finish in medium heat dryer, unless hang-drying is recommended, which is the case for most knits.
  • Hand-pressing is recommended on most items after the wash and dry to straighten out the seams and edges which tend to pucker or curl on natural fabrics.
  • Some hand-dyed items may leak a bit of color during the washing, that is normal and will not affect the item. Using liquid softener during the wash will minimize any color leaking.
